This recipe transforms a regularĀ 2-serving can of Campbell’s Chunky Beef soup into a big, satisfying meal for a whole family! It also adds extra protein, vitamin A, fibre, and other essential nutrients. You can serve this stew with a slice of bread or a bun, or over rice or pasta.

Serves: 3-4

  1. In a saucepan, boil the water. Add the carrots and turnips, cooking for 4 minutes (or until soft; be careful not to overcook, otherwise veggies will be mushy!)
